Responding to Growing Risks Faced by Canadian Multinationals, ACE Broadens Global Primary Casualty Offering

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACE Group today announced the strengthening of its global primary casualty offering with an expanded service platform designed to protect the multinational business activities of Canadian companies. ACE Risk Management Global Casualty ushers in a dedicated team of underwriting professionals and an enhanced suite of insurance products to help Canadian multinationals navigate the emerging risks, country-specific regulation, and foreign exposures associated with expansion. This move means ACE can better service large Canadian multinational companies, as well as smaller but growing companies that may be interested in increasing their operations both in North America and around the world.

Matt Merna, Division President of ACE Risk Management Global Casualty, said, “Canadian companies are looking for the best risk management solutions, given their unique challenges, while they conduct business in Canada as well as in other countries across the globe. Our experience dealing with many of the largest companies worldwide provides us with a unique opportunity to provide customized solutions for these clients.”

ACE Risk Management Global Casualty has assembled a team of highly experienced professionals whose expertise in writing complex programs helps clients effectively manage their risks. An enhanced model provides a robust suite of programs delivered by a fully aligned team of underwriting, claims, actuarial, legal, credit, and other services.

Program structures include: High deductibles, fronts, captives, self-insured retentions (SIRs), and the following guaranteed cost options:

  • Up to $5,000,000 primary general liability and automobile policy limits
  • Foreign Casualty
    • Contingent Automobile Liability & Physical Damage
    • Global Medical and AD&D
    • Global Kidnap & Extortion (up to $200K limits)
    • Foreign commercial property capacity up to $50M per location
    • Foreign voluntary workers compensation with state/province or country of hire benefits; employers liability limits up to $5M

As an example of these dynamic changes, ACE Risk Management Global Casualty has introduced updated policy and endorsement language in its Canadian General Liability policy. The new policy language improves clarity and consistency within the form; provides for consistent interpretation of coverage language, and makes it easier to customize coverage and tailor the policies to each client’s unique needs; all of which underscores ACE’s commitment to providing high value and superior service to Canadian clients.

ACE Risk Management Global Casualty offers Canadian customers a personalized approach to designing their insurance programs.
